can any one help in this issue?
Since we do not know the exact circumstance of your system, it is hard to tell what might be needed.
If you have the install DVD, you should be able to run Startup Repair 3 or 4 times to get your boot back. It takes several passes because it has to fix certain items before it can fix others and it needs a reboot to do that.
If Startup Repair does not work, what message does it give?
I'm not sure you are following the correct steps.Try this walkthrough:
Boot your computer to the Windows 7 DVD
Choose to install now.
Select your language and click next.
Click the button for "Use recovery tools".
Now select "Command Prompt". You may need to run as Administrator.
Type the command: bootsect /nt60 C:
Restart your computer and Windows 7 should boot as the GRUB loader is now eliminated.If not, to get the Windows 7 GUI start-up back, now use , as before the command: bootrec /fixmbr
Now try for another reboot.
You can then remove all traces of the Linux distribution
The situation may be that since deleting the Ubuntu partition stopped the ability to boot into Windows that the active partition was on the Ubuntu volume. If there is no active partition, then not much will work.
I would suggest you use something like Partition Wizard and G-Parted and look at the drive to make sure it has an active partition for Windows to keep its boot files. G-Parted might be on the Linux install disc which you can run as a live version if you select try instead of install.
We are talking about just one drive, right? If you were using two, then changing the order in the bios or using an F key to boot to the other drive might help.
